British Grand Prix 2014: How to watch this weekend's race at Silverstone
All the information for this year's race at Silverstone
Friday 04 July 2014
In the ninth race of the 2013-14 Formula One season, the teams have descended on Silverstone for the British Grand Prix.
For many of the competitors, this is something of a local race, with a large proportion of Formula One's teams based not far from the Buckinghamshire racecourse.
This season has been dominated by the Mercedes team, with Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton way out ahead in the individual standings. Rosberg leads Hamilton by 29 points, so the Englishman will be wanting to win in order to close the gap on his teammate and biggest rival for this year's crown.
The good news for Hamilton fans is that he finished the second practice session faster than Rosberg, although and oil-pressure problem meant the session wasn't a total success.
